[SOLVED] Im thinking to buy my first nvme ssd, is the CP P34A80 ssd a good choice?


Jun 8, 2018
So guys as the title says, i decided its time to buy my first Nvme ssd and fill the slot pcie3 x4 slot of my x470 prime pro, the price of p34a80 512gb in my country is 90€.

At first i was thinking to buy the 970 evo plus 500gb (120€) but after some second thoughts i decided that for my casual use of my pc (games, browsing , movies) i am not gonna see any big difference ,so i thought maybe its better to save 30€ , what do u think guys is my reasoning

The P34A80 is gonna replace my 860 evo for my OS drive (and the 860 gonna be my gaming library drive)

Also an alternative option is the Adata XPG SX8200 Pro 512GB for 88€.

My rest of hardware storage is

500gb sata ssd 860 evo - os drive (for now)

2tb sshd seagate firecuda 3,5 - secondary drive

Ps (Next drive upgrade is gonna be a 1tb mx 500 crusial m2 sata ssd for my gaming library the 1tb is 115€ these days)
